Two New Block of the Month Quilts! | Quilty Pleasures Blog

There’s so much to love about Block of the Month quilts. First there’s the anticipation of receiving a fun monthly shipment in the mail; then there’s the excitement when your “quilt mail” arrives! And of course, there’s the pleasure of having a larger quilt project in the works that you can create a little at a time while you carry on with your other projects.

We have two new Block of the Month quilts available, and we’re so excited to show them to you. One is a bright and happy modern design featuring star blocks. The other is a lovely batik quilt featuring appliqué. For each of these great BOM projects you will receive a monthly shipment that includes fabric and instructions to make a section of the quilt. Plus – you’ll get access to free video tutorials on QNNtv.com to help guide you to completion!

Urban Basix

Urban Basix: First up we have Urban Basix — a new 6-month BOM starting in June! This queen-size quilt finishes at  81″ x 96″ and features a variety of star blocks in two sizes. Techniques you’ll use while making this quilt include: four-at-a-time Flying Geese Units, quick triangle-squares and the diagonal seams method for patchwork.

Kits will include fabric from the Urban Elementz Basix collection by Northcott Fabrics, the program sponsor. The free video lessons will be taught by Jenny Kae Parks.

Backing fabric for Urban Basix is also available separately.

Aviary block of the month quilt Two New Block of the Month Quilts!

Aviary

Aviary: Next up, check out Aviary – a new 9-month BOM that just started this month! This batik quilt was designed by Keith Phillips of QuiltFusion and features beautiful bird and nature appliques of various sizes and shapes. All appliqué pieces will come pre-cut and fused, so all you will have to do is cut the backgrounds and assemble the quilt. You’ll learn some great techniques while making this one, like how to use an applique pressing sheet to make applique assemblies to speed up the construction of the quilt top. The quilt also features a unique filigree border. The finished size is 72 1/2″ x 87 1/2″.

Kits will include batiks from Hoffman California Fabrics, the program sponsor. The free video lessons are taught by Nancy Mahoney and the first couple are available now!

Backing fabric for Aviary is also available separately.
